Get married in Paris: an Eiffel Tower wedding

Today, it is the first snow in Paris… So I want to write you about Amber and Ryan small wedding in Paris when the weather was still sunny. They got married near the Eiffel Tower for a romantic sunny day!

Amber and Ryan came from the United States for their destination wedding in Paris. We had been planning and preparing their beautiful day since a few months. Paris had welcome them with an incredible sunny day, perfect conditions for their ceremony near the Eiffel Tower.

The first contact with DVV Events…

As you may know, a lot of our clients contact us through our blog Getting Married in Paris; that’s the best way to start your destination wedding planning with me. And that’s what Amber and Ryan did. They send us a message through our blog and that’s how the adventure began.

A wedding with the Eiffel Tower as the special guest

Amber and Ryan had one leading word: the Eiffel Tower. They really wanted to have the Eiffel Tower as a special guest of their wedding in Paris and maybe as their main witness.

Getting Married in Paris - Eiffel Tower

Their main idea was to have a beautiful ceremony with views over the Eiffel Tower. As they will be only few guests, the idea of having the ceremony outside was possible if the weather will have been clever with us. To protect the wedding, we decided to plan their outside ceremony with a second option in case of rain. September is one of the most beautiful month to get married in Paris (less crowd, still beautiful weather,…) and we had the chance to plan their ceremony in a secret spot in the Eiffel Tower garden itself! A private spot with a lot of intimacy which was perfect for their wedding in Paris. We had an incredible view over the Eiffel Tower as we were just behind the Parisian monument. What else could we ask?

A beautiful wedding reception in a private mansion…

After this beautiful and sunny ceremony and after taking some pictures in the docks for example, it was time to discover the wedding venue chosen by our couple for their wedding dinner in Paris.

Amber and Ryan fall in love with a private mansion very near the Eiffel Tower and a special room of this venue. The venue is composed of several rooms, a restaurant and a beautiful garden. In our first idea with the couple, we wanted to plan the ceremony in the garden of the venue. However, the garden’s venue didn’t have a real view over the Eiffel Tower. That’s why, Amber and Ryan had skipped this idea and planned their ceremony in the Eiffel Tower garden.

Their wedding room was a beautiful wedding room with a typical Parisian style decoration and an incredible candelabra which illuminated the place. Amber and Ryan wanted to have a big rectangular table with a lot of flowers and candles. Thanks to our florist designer Reflets Fleurs, we planned an incredible scenography for their dinner shot by Rosina Prod.

Each guest had the opportunity to choose their own menu before the wedding to enjoy as much as possible the wedding dinner in Paris.

We had an incredible time with Amber and Ryan planning their destination wedding in Paris and they were absolutely gorgeous and very in love in our City of Love…

Your symbolic ceremony in Paris… Wait, a what?

You may have heard about symbolic ceremonies for weddings or elopements. Since a few years, the symbolic ceremony is becoming the new trend in ceremonies for couples who want to customize their wedding but also their ceremony. The religious ceremony is now competing with the symbolic ceremony as the civil ceremony is still mandatory to officially be considered as married. How can you plan your symbolic ceremony in Paris?

What is it exactly a symbolic ceremony?

Before the arrival of the symbolic ceremony, there was only two choices: the civil ceremony and the religious ceremony.

The civil ceremony is mandatory to be officially considered as married. You have to get married in the City Hall of the city where you live even if some exceptions exist. For example, if you want to get married in Paris and you have no parents living in the city or one of you both, you won’t be able to get married in Paris with a civil ceremony. In France, you have to be living in the city where you want to get married (or a very close parent). If not, your application will be refused.

The religious ceremony is possible in Paris of course. However, you will have to follow a big preparation and you will have to be in contact with your religious referent in your country such as in France. It can be a long preparation with a lot of stuff to prepare and send.

That’s why we think the symbolic ceremony is a very good option if you want to get married in Paris with a ceremony which looks like you. The symbolic ceremony has no value but you can plan it as you want and where you want. You have a complete liberty to create your own texts, your own vows too. If you want to enter with an AC-DC music, you can! If you want your doggy to bring the rings, you can! If you want your grandma to have a dance with your witnesses, you can too! LOL 🙂 You have a complete freedom to create the structure, the texts, the songs, the pictures and videos if you want,… of your symbolic ceremony.

Who can be your officiant?

With the symbolic ceremony, you have also the opportunity to choose your officiant. Here are your two options:

  • You can choose a professional celebrant. He will guide you step by step in the construction of your ceremony. He will help you to write your vows if you need it and introduce you the several rituals, invent one with you if you want – as the ceremony is yours, you can also decide to not do any ritual. Sabrina is our celebrant. She will guide you in every step and make sure you create the perfect ceremony. To have a range of price, to be guided by our celebrant will cost you from 696€. (- If you want to contact her -) 

 

  • You can choose a close relative or friend: because you know exactly who can relate your love story. He or she is that friend who knows everything about you both, who supports you during the hard moments and has an incredibly talent to speak in front of a public. Yes, this moment must be a beautiful for you three, take care of your officiant, choose an officiant who don’t have any problem with speaking to a public. You also can find a professional celebrant who can coach your officiant for the ceremony.

Your symbolic ceremony in Paris… where?

 

symbolic ceremony in paris

Paris is full of surprises, your symbolic ceremony in Paris could take place wherever you want. We have already talked about places for a ceremony in Paris in an article a few weeks ago – but let’s have a reminder…

First of all, you have all the important monuments which are perfect places to plan your ceremony in Paris. The Eiffel Tower and the Trocadero, the Louvre and its gardens, the so romantic district of Montmartre with the Sacré Coeur, the wonderful Notre Dame,…. These places are gorgeous but you will have to deal with the crowd, so if you can do your ceremony early that would be better. If not, don’t be afraid, there is always a good spot with less crowd in each important place.

You can also plan your ceremony in one of the parks of the city. We have the chance to have beautiful parks and some near the most important places in Paris. What about the Tuileries Gardens for your ceremony near the Louvre? Or the chapel of the incredible Buttes Chaumont’s park?

Another place which can be so romantic are the Seine docks. You will find docks in a big part of the City because the Parisian river, the Seine, crosses a big part of the city.If you want to plan your ceremony during the day and you don’t want to deal with all the tourists (we love them but we don’t want them to get invited to the ceremony :-D), you will find perfect docks with intimate spots. What about planning your ceremony with views over the City and with the romanticism bring by the river?

Now… Are you ready to plan the most beautiful symbolic ceremony in Paris?
